More Sun, Brief Note

The marine stratus burned off by mid-morning, though some clouds lingered around the mountain slopes into early afternoon. I don’t think the temperature reached 60, as there was a bit of a sea breeze keeping things cool. The breeze was only mild, and died down early this evening (at least at my place).

My outside time today was mostly limited to playing ultimate and then working in the yard, though I did take a short walk at Pioneer Park to see the shootingstars (Dodecatheon pulchellum) blooming.

I peeked in the Tree Swallow nest box again today, and could see a small white egg. At the time there was not an adult in there as far as I can tell. One of the birds (I think the male, though I’ve not checked carefully) seems to keep watch from the wire while the other (presumably female) is in the nest box. At least that’s the way it seemed to me based on the intermittent attention I paid.

I’m pretty sure I’ve been hearing Swainson’s Thrushes over the past couple of days, but so far never very near me. I heard the distinctive “quee-burr” call today while at Moller Park.

Finally got the last of the plant order planted today. A couple of bare root honeyberry bushes, I put into the berm.
